Thursday Thirteen


I recently found out that the "official Thursday Thirteen" site is no longer going to be doing the post, cause of family issues. My heart goes out to them, and my prayers! I really like doing the Thursday Thirteen post, so I'm going to continue with mine.... I am going to go at least thru the alphabet and then go from there, that is at least 26 weeks right?! :) So this week we start with the letter "A"

1. Apples: A great fruit. I love the Golden Delicious the best. Very versatile to, you can cook with them in savory and sweet dishes! My kids like them with peanut butter! One of my favorite family activities is to go apple picking.

2. Ants: Annoying creatures! Especially fire ants, no one has yet gotten bit to bad by them since being here, but we have taught the kids to be very aware of where they stand or sit to play!

3. Awesome: A word I use quite often. Not really sure why, it has just stuck over the years!

4. Aunt: I am an Aunt to 5 technically! I have lots of others, I have adopted over the years. I miss my nieces and nephews very much.

5. Animal Crossing: My new addiction on the Wii might have to buy it. We only rented it to try it out. I don't play video games often, but I have found the Wii to be fun..and very family orientated!

6. Alone: Something I really every get to be.... At what age do your children stop following you to the bathroom???

7. Age: Wow, it is hard to believe that this year I will be 30 years old. UGH! Where did the time go?? My kids are growing up fast... its strange to me how the nine months goes by so slow waiting for them, but once they are here the time just flies.

8. Amazon: No, not the bookstore. I think it would be cool to visit the amazon sometime. See the different creatures that live there, although, avoid all spiders!

9. Appointments: Do you ever notice you go weeks without any, and then they all seem to pile up at once?? I have had some for the kids once a week for the last couple weeks. Crazy!

10. Algebra: I'm not very good at it. However, the year I was in it my father was taking it through adult ed. We had the same teacher, so we used to do our homework together, which worked out nicely cause what he understand I didn't and what I understood he didn't. We made a pretty good time! Ah, the memories!

11. Art: I was never big on it in school, cause I can't draw... But I have come to enjoy it a bit more thru my children. They like anything to do with art, we have crayons up the whazoo! We draw, color, paint, and so on.. Its nice seeing what their minds come up with.

12. Alaska: I'm not sure i could ever live there... Far to cold, and the whole light and dark thing would really get to me. Can you imagine a day with very little daylight or none at all?? I would like to someday visit there though... its on my list of things to do! :)

13. April: So a nice month... beginning of spring one of my favorite seasons. Nice rain showers, but beautiful comfortable days... the flowers start to come out. It is also the month my first child, my handsome little man was born in. :)

Stay tuned next week for the letter "B"

Thought I'd share some comments on your list!!

2. "Ants: Annoying creatures! Especially fire ants, no one has yet gotten bit to bad by them since being here." Ouch fire ants hurt....

4. 'Aunt: I am an Aunt to 5 technically!"
I'm an aunt to 4 and great aunt to five

5. "Animal Crossing: My new addiction on the Wii"
We got it for Christmas and it hasn't been opened. I think I will get Tara to put it in tonight. She loved it when we rented it - she's just not been playing the Wii since Christmas. Too busy making Creepy Crawlers and playing outside

6. "Alone: Something I really every get to be.... At what age do your children stop following you to the bathroom???"
I'll let you know... she's still doing it at almost 12, and don't even think of closing the door all the way in case Princess the dog has to visit too!

7. "Age: Wow, it is hard to believe that this year I will be 30 years old."
Wait until you are 50!!! I'm almost 51 and still having a hard time realizing I'm 50 and can join AARP!

10. "Algebra: I'm not very good at it."
Algebra was my first F ever, then I had a tutor, and got As. Tara's starting some now, I hope I remember! Who cares waht X equals!

11. "Art: wehave crayons up the whazoo!"
Us too... and enough construction paper to paper a small room!!
